That’s Rule No. 1 for motorists who are on

It’s a long list this year—for never before has
there been so great a demand for Hudson style,
quality and performance.
Of course we hope you're scheduled for a
beautiful new 1946 Hudson one of these days.
But until you get it, let us keep you in the
driver’s seat with prompt, expert Hudson service
—moderately priced.
That’s the commonsense way to assure safer,
more dependable transportation, as well as higher
value for your car when you come to trade it in.
